It’s dumb, to completely separate countries like this, seems like a Cold War parody.
But, I’m here just want to point out something I find peculiar, about the two ideologies’ skies, literally.
I grow up in China, so it’s no news to me that the sky is always grey. Occurred to me that it’s a consequence of constant pollution.
Later I traveled to Russia. A post-socialist country, and I find it incredibly reminiscent that their sky looks like ours! In Moscow, in St. Petersburg. Deja vu.
